27th Annual National Night Out - 2010
On Tuesday, October 5th, from 5pm to 10 pm neighborhoods throughout Texarkana Arkansas will be turning their lights on and spending the evening outside with Texarkana Arkansas Police Officers, Firefighters and City Officials while celebrating the “27th Annual National Night Out.”
National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for, and participation in local anti-crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community partnerships, and send a message to criminals that your neighborhood is organized and fighting back.
Many neighborhoods throughout Texarkana Arkansas will be hosting block parties and cookouts, while visiting with their local police officers, firefighters and elected officials, as well as other members of city staff.
National Night Out involves 10,000 communities in all 50 states and is supported by the Department of Justice.
